Say it ain’t so! ‘Jeopardy!’ host Alex Trebek is not a big fan of the Phillie Phanatic. We found out this piece of info on Friday night’s show, when Brian Lynch of Los Angeles, revealed that he got into a fight with the Phanatic once upon a time.
Lynch says he was at a game in Scranton, adding, “I had my feet on the dugout and my one foot grazed him somewhere and I didn’t realize until he rolled on top of me and started elbowing me. I almost threw him off the dugout.”
Trebek’s reply? “Good for you… I’m not a big fan of the Phillie Phanatic.”
Reactions were of course allover the place, with many, including the Phillies, totally shocked, in the “How could you?” Department! Trebek did add though as a follow up that he was a fan of the team, however.
